5:05 am
but the only evidence they provided it was a number of photos showing armored vehicles on the roads in unidentifiable locations the e.u. and nato expressed their concern at the news however the u.n. and washington both saying they can't confirm in any way shape or form that any russian unit did actually cross the border we had a chance to speak to a number of political analysts and investigative journalists on the matter but this is the vision that happened the ukrainians the nato would have been desperate to get video of this of food to graphs are up on the internet on the t.v. saying here is proof of a russian putin led invasion of ukraine and they also have to ask this if the russians were going to invade ukraine would they just send in some armored personnel carriers lightly armored vehicles this is the twenty first century in modern times you don't wage a war by rolling in twenty three tanks warfare in modern times as waged with drones and fighter helicopters there were an actual russian military invasion of ukraine
5:06 am
we would know about it and there would be no debate about it would be absolutely insane to russia to you that would be absolutely in changeful for a russian armored vehicles to go in they like advertising what they can work knowing that everybody's got cameras everybody can take photographs and knowing the elliptical situation regarding this conflict it would be absolutely sure a side of russia to to do that. i know this just in seventeen ukrainian soldiers have laid down their arms and crossed the border into russia this according to the russian security service it's not the first time that troops have disagreed with the way kiev has been waging the war in the east and the latest incident two weeks ago more than four hundred soldiers arrived in russia seeking sanctuary. now the e.u. has threatened to impose another round of sanctions on russia blaming it for the violence in eastern ukraine however the unity of a punitive measures appears to be fraying slovakia's prime minister for example he criticized them as a meaningless gesture that would threaten economic growth in various member states
5:07 am
the czech president claimed there are still themselves are ineffective and could only lead to a spiral lot of worsening relations that what a chief nothing and that divide has deepened even further after russia's retaliated tory ban on western produced food it's leaving many european companies without access to a key market we spoke to the european union as ambassador to russia he did express some optimism for a quick return to business as usual of course some companies may or may may face some losses. will be looking for that then it is as i said especially those countries and those exporters market who have been under scrutiny of. russian situations here face to sanctions and barriers they have successfully overcome by finding a new new new however of course we came to maintain the trade value

5:09 am
it's international thanks for joining us today becomes you live from moscow where the police officer who shot dead an unarmed black teenager in the u.s. . has now been identified with us fail to quell the public outrage over the shooting and out of the militarized response of all authorities to the protest rallies reports a groups of protesters still remain on the streets being watched over by police. reports a park in the suburbs of st louis missouri protesters are continuing to come out onto the streets calling for justice in the case feeling eighteen year old son armed michael brown. the name of a police officer be fined the killing has been released diane wilson he's twenty eight years old he is white and we do know that you have and i think police by.
5:10 am
ever so please earlier we spoke with one of the attorneys michael brown's family and this is what he told about the information that's being released by the police just a name. yes there. is a lot more we need to learn about him especially. you know his actions after he shot by going before he shot those things that crucial to determining. what happened and we spoke to some people about this latest information i'm kind of. like the information being released today you know with the name we kind of wanted information. you know we. got to initially i was afraid to come out here because when i saw the militia you know the police out here showing brzezinski threatening weapons in just presenting themselves in a threatening manner i was afraid to come out here because when i started. sure
5:11 am
ghassan and the manner that they were approaching and read arresting people together here here is certainly shifted somewhat because for the first fortnight what we saw were pretty violent clashes between mostly of very heavily militarized police who were using tear gas and rubber bullets people still don't understand why this young man had held. by i. think we. can. now the use of tear gas by police in ferguson has sparked a somewhat unexpected online response from across the atlantic palestinians taking to twitter advising protesters not to wash their eyes if they hit with tear gas also telling them to try and stay calm and don't run straight into the wind now tear gas is known for. being temporary blindness breathing problems miscarriages as well as heart and liver damage as well but the tear gas not the only tool used by police to counter the most of the peaceful rallies and ferguson in fact security

forces have also had an m. four rifle in their arsenal a weapon used in wars around the world police have also been reinforced by light armored vehicles we have those in service of course in afghanistan and iraq and that's not enough at m.k. eleven sniper rifle also used in combat that was also seen as a necessary to tackle the peaceful protesters law enforcement expert john whitehead he believes the police massively overreacting a number of studies show that once you put on the gear as the police when you're trained you start acting like a military unit like you're in a patrol and unfortunately what happens is the psychology changes in a lot of these little policemen when they're approaching a house for a swat team or a it's like they're moving in on our car that supposedly we're the masters and they're the servants but you know at first when they're telling people to back up twenty five feet in a zone they're violating their free speech rights you have a right to walk up to a civil servant and say sir why are you doing this why you're here there pointing
5:13 am
guns at people and chasing them away that's not a policeman anymore again that's the military and that's what we're dealing with most police agencies operate basically anyway the lot of the local city councils and politicians just let them go. as i've written in the number of instances i've seen. the local citizens get they get down to local city council meeting they get their size and they say we're not moving into the changes thing it's not your seat tyranny in this country this is this is the face of the government today what you're seeing in ferguson and it's only going to get worse if we don't back you know. at the thugs and shooting may have actually led to some serious shifts in u.s. society you've got to watch the dot com you'll see the latest poll a brand new survey showing how the killing of michael brown has hurt trust in the police at. leaving almost off the nation the highly disillusioned. and coming up on the program a man who was on the road with an award for saving a jewish child during world war two now says he doesn't want to anymore the deadly
5:14 am
bomb bodman of gaza behind the elderly mouse decision will tell you more on that just a bit later in the program. i was trained. in december of two thousand and ten. more likely to be raped in college than in the real world. i don't think people did that to each other when
5:15 am
they knew each other i thought rape was a stranger in the bushes. girl complaining about the son of an alumni who's gives millions of dollars to the school why listen to somebody who's going to lose money at the school of schools that make money based decisions are much more common than they would ever admit publicly. saturday afternoon here in moscow thanks for joining us it's r.t. international a ninety one year old dutchman awarded a holocaust on earth for saving a jewish child has returned to israel after six of his relatives were killed in an airstrike in gaza and in his letter addressing the israeli ambassador ninety one year old i know lee wrote for me too on the from excuse me for me to hold onto the
5:16 am
honor i should say granted by the state of israel it will be both an insult to the memory of my courageous mother as well as an insult to those in my family for generations on who lost no less than six of their relatives in gaza at the hands of the state of israel members of the family who escaped the attack still can't even believe the deadly strike actually happened. half an hour before our house was shelled two cars from gaza came to take us away coming to a new place i went to buy some food and when i came back my uncle told me my father was dead my younger brothers think our father went to heaven and my sisters were told he went to egypt for presents an article in this house was shelled on july twentieth by israeli air forces without any warning my six family members were killed as a result my mother three brothers my brother's wife and a nephew and four story house was completely destroyed what's going on in gaza at the moment is an aggression of occupation forces against the people who live under
5:17 am
occupation is seek justice and stand for their independence eighty percent of the victims are civilians with children and women among them no doubt what's going on is an aggression strikes on houses and schools without a warning the shelling of playgrounds bombardments on the first day of festivities what other thing can you call it the shelling of hospitals and emergency vehicles what can you call it. and in london more than one hundred fifty men women and children gathered to highlight the suffering caused by the blockade have a look at the symbolic protests in the heart of westminster demonstrators placing themselves and wooden boxes to highlight the confined spaces the people of gaza have to endure to read more about that right now online at r.t. dot com while you're there we've got the story also i want how a recent social media posting has attracted the attention of the u.s. secret service after a message supporting the islamic state militant group was sent from just outside
5:18 am
the white house. in the meantime the islamic states offensive in iraq continues and entire kurdish villages are reportedly being massacred by jihadists militants that have managed to occupy large areas of northern iraq the population of the village consists mostly of the yazidi. minority persecuted by islamists are considered to be devil worshipers by the she harvests thousands of years people have fled their homes to escape the onslaught i mean while e.u. foreign ministers have agreed to supply heavy weapons to the kurdish forces in iraq to help them fight. now or something more that could lead to. hot on the heels of the u.s. and france the u.k. has announced its readiness to supply arms directly to kurdish forces which are trying to fight off brutal jihadists in northern iraq the u.k. has said we will also consider favorably any requests for supplies of arms we
5:19 am
already shipping ammunition and supplies mother eastern european countries into a bill but there are fears the lessons of the past haven't been learnt it's a quick fix to to think that you can arm a group or send an aircraft and bomb and so on but that doesn't deal with the problem the main problem is that the politicians don't plan ahead to always reacting to crises in syria the west backed the rebels who then warped into the a ceramic state the very problem now being faced across the border in iraq and the two thousand and eleven western backed overthrow of colonel gadhafi led to three years of political chaos in libya with weapons again falling into the wrong hands and according to the u.n. flooding west africa now the kurds need help fighting jihadists but what happens if they win with western weapons in hand to know on the kurdish fighters testifies to a tokenistic and indeed a short term solution to
5:20 am
a very real problem which is to fight back isis let's not forget that by arming the kurdish fighters what is actually being encouraged is the breakup of iraq as a sovereign entity the kurds are desperate for independence from iraq and when the islam mix state was a problem only in the south of the country the prospect of an all too. want to miss north began to look at spain and bo last month one iraqi kurdish leader told local lawmakers to plan for an independence referendum i don't think we should be encouraging secession in the middle east or simply sort of mean sort of having everything and it's quite risky independence would be complicated because it would create problems in turkey and syria and of course the iraq itself but to encourage them in this way is. potentially breaking in iraq government sources in the british media and reportedly came to stress that the u.k. is not moving towards direct military intervention in iraq and that sending arms is
5:21 am
consistent with the government's response to a humanitarian crisis critics fear arming the kurds scared facilitate the breakup of iraq but for those in favor the need to stop the islam makes states murderous campaign is so precious saying that leaders may have resigned themselves to achieving their short term goal of driving terrorists out of northern iraq first and worrying about the long term consequences later boyko artsy london. in four years since its launch london's bike hire scheme has proved to be one of the most efficient and popular cycling systems in europe but there are also problems that can be soft pedaled among which are the draining costs of the program and cycling safety issues. campaigners voicing concerns over a high number of casualties among cyclists since the schemes introduction i could
5:22 am
persuade london streets are not safe enough despite the government's promises to make the city bicycle friendly and now with one of the major sponsors ending its involvement of the program and success is now being questioned even further and his artie's monitors. there are now over five hundred bike sharing programs around the world double the number from just a few years ago london's bike scheme set up by the previous macin livingston is now the second largest cycle hire system in europe it remains an affordable and enjoy the way to travel around the city so far so good but what's the future for cyclists in the british capital there's a range of oil rigs being put in place which allowed cyclists to go. around the city on quieter less populous roads there's a cycle superhighways there's already several of those in the city and another five i think planned for next couple of years but to the math adds up the project is
5:23 am
draining enormous funds and barclays will end its association next year the bank pays just a sixth of the cost of keeping the bicycles on the road and transport for london said it was left with a bill of over eleven million pounds last year that leaves the u.k. taxpayer remaining one thousand three hundred and eighty eight pounds per bike cycling safety is also a major concern after a number of deaths a major accidents are london's roads safe enough campaign is have said that local authorities need to do more to protect the people on bikes. london has promised segregated cycle tracks and you traffic free public spaces but almost a billion pounds into pro bike reforms this includes redesigning london's roads transforming badly designed junctions and banning lorries that lack up to date
5:24 am
safety features. however as the scheme expands companies say that more should be done but when it came in we said to the mayor you need a good network of routes easy routes that people can get to where they want to go and easy to easy to follow with good directions and they haven't done that they're still talking about doing that to push bikes have become and integra part of traveling around london and the numbers of uses both new and regular continues to grow but despite the danger is it doesn't seem to be putting london is all tourists off myself included. with rapid expansion it's obvious that the barra spikes here in london are a great success rolling the idea routes around cities in the u.k. and around the world as a healthy eco friendly form of transport the benefits are clear but the public safety traffic issues and road infrastructure must stay the mezz main priority of
5:25 am
the scheme of andrews a lot of them are the cars reporters next unless you're in the u.k. then you're going on the ground with afshin returns. baltimore is considering making their curfew for minors even stricter for the last twenty years children caught on the street up until midnight were in deep trouble with the police but now this will be made even earlier starting at nine or ten pm depending on their age and the day of the week can the government impose a curfew on youths well yes if we think about it people under eighteen can't sign contracts join the army smoke cigarettes or vote because they're legally not responsible for their own actions so yeah that whole freedom of association guaranteed by the constitution really only applies once you're an adult who can in theory be responsible for associating with certain people on
5:26 am
a street corner. at midnight although legally this is ok ideologically there's something wrong with the idea i remember hearing in school all the talk about living in the greatest country on earth and how many freedoms we have in america but the problem is that it is hard for teenagers to believe all these nice slogans when they have to dodge police just for walking down the street in their own home town getting a two hundred fifty dollar fine for leaving your house doesn't make you feel like you're living in the greatest country on earth i mean it sure didn't when they put up a curfew in my neighborhood in the ninety's but that's just my opinion. if sweden or federal to bring deep to join nato that would provoke some sort of free action on the part of russia if this is as far as a military calculus is concerned none of what faces humanity east the west north and south lawn of it can be solved by military means or fighter aircraft or
5:27 am
satellites or nuclear weapons military is outdated it should go like cannibalism and slavery and child labor it doesn't belong to civilization to kill each other.
5:28 am
i wanna wake up in a city that doesn't sleep yes this is a kaiser report i'm max kaiser right here in the belly of the beast men hat and stacy you're looking very beautiful max i want to make sure to clarify i'm glad you said that we're in new york city because many yanks out there we they watch the show and they think we're in yemen or kabul they don't realize this is man has not a green screen no it's not a green screen and in fact you might see some humpback whales breach the water here you might see some great white sharks i've seen a lot of humping up over there port authority but well i want to mention that we are recording at kofi right here long island city these guys are so nice to allow us to film here but i want to manish mash while we're here back in london you were seen on a placard max keiser out a placard of peace broke out stock markets would crash this is from sven loach max
5:29 am
stock markets are not crashing that means there is no peace well this is the amazing thing about these markets is that they are really seeding on a war and destruction because that's where the money's coming from to feed all these bombing campaigns around the world principally from the countries whose stock markets are hurting all time highs like the u.s. stock market that's where the money is coming to continue the occupation of these. country so if there was a crash that would mean tese if peace were to break out then the stock markets would crash so that's why there will be no peace as long as there's a lot of cheap money feeding a lot of cheap wars on the cheap and you see a lot of death and destruction that's what these markets are telegraphing that's their financing that's what it's all about well the leading politicians here do not want the stock market markets to crash and so we have headlines like this lindsey graham predicts an american city in flames if obama doesn't go to war in iraq senator lindsey graham republican from south carolina warned on sunday that militants in iraq and syria would attack the u.s. mainland if.
